Wiley Launches New Program of Open Access Journals
Professor Allen Moore, University of Exeter and newly appointed Editor-in-Chief of Ecology and Evolution comments:
"I am excited to be involved with this new open access journals initiative. Ecology and Evolution will deliver rapid decisions and fast publication of research in all areas of ecology, evolution and conservation science. By working in collaboration with leading societies to deliver open access to all, this new journal offers authors an ideal place to publish their work quickly to the broadest possible audience."
Professor Geoff Hanlon, Honorary President of Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM) comments:
"The new Wiley Open Access journal in microbiology will deliver something of real value, with in-depth peer-review, fast publishing times and availability to the worldwide research community. We are looking forward to partnering with Wiley to support this new high-quality open access journal for the microbiology community."
Wiley Open Access journals will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and is not used for commercial purposes. A publication fee will be payable by authors on acceptance of their articles. Wiley will introduce a range of new payment schemes to enable academic and research institutions, funders, societies, and corporations to actively support their researchers and members who wish to publish in Wiley Open Access journals.
